To the Top of the Mountain

Rachel and I went on an adventure together. We hiked to the top of Pupu Point here in Issaquah. It was a long, hard, steep hike, but luckily 6 year old Rachel was there to drag me to the top.

Stopping for a breather
Rachel found a pretty wildflower.

We made it to the top! That's Mt Rainier in the background.

Having a much needed snack
We walked to the other side of the top to watch the paragliders take off
Standing on the paraglider's launch pad
That brown patch in the middle down there is Rachel's school.

There went a paraglider!

Rachel gathered all those sticks and rocks
And got pretty dirty doing it.

We made it back to the bottom!

We were pretty dirty!
After we cleaned up we went for Rachel's favorite, panpakes!
That was a long hard hike, but a great time with Rachel.

Seattle Center

We went to the Seattle Center in the shadow of the Space Needle to cool off at the International Fountain on a hot summer day.  

We were soaked so he took a break to warm up in the sun.

So much fun at such a beautiful place!

Father's Day 2015

I sure had a happy day with my beautiful girls!

My favorite present
The girls and I made a quiche together for breakfast. Naomi stirred everything, Hannah chopped the veggies, and Rachel put in the ham.
It sure was delicious!

Naomi made me a great present.

It wouldn't be right without a pic of me with my eyes closed eating a yummy fried green tomato BLT
The girls and I took a stroll down Fenders on Front Street to see all the cool cars 

The girls don't know what Back to the Future is, but they like how the doors open.

Rachel likes the purple ones
Naomi likes the Mickey and Minnie one

I bbq'd some steaks, green beans, and potatoes for a yummy dinner.

What a fun, happy, yummy day. I sure love being a dad!
